Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike – Features

Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike

Engine Features

It’s simple to accelerate from a standstill thanks to the car’s strong low- and midrange torque. Airbox and intake duct optimization improves engine performance. It features a small and compact airbox, which helps to reduce the total chassis width and makes it calmer for riders to put their feet on the ground. Using lighter-weight pistons helps increase power throughout the whole rev range. Because of the reduced compression ratio, the Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike can operate on regular unleaded fuel. Oil jets cool the pistons by spraying oil on their undersides via grooves in the pistons. Short piston pins assist in maintaining the character of a high-revving engine by reducing reciprocating mass. Because of the low weight and better heat dissipation provided by the open deck, the aluminum die-cast open-deck sleeve-less cylinder is preferred. Crankcase design has a large-volume, finned oil pan to improve cooling efficiency. For simplicity of maintenance, it has a spin-on oil filter.

Digital Fuel Injection (DFI)

DFI makes starting and idling a breeze, and it also improves performance and fuel economy. For maximum performance and rideability, this bike has twin throttle valves (KP). The ECU controls the airflow to the sub-throttles, which are positioned before the main throttle valves in the throttle bore. It results in a natural, linear throttle response.

Tuned Exhaust System

To improve low and mid-range power for off-roading, an exhaust header is installed near the engine. Power is boosted at the top end thanks to large-diameter header pipes and center pipes. To satisfy sound restrictions and offer excellent cornering lean angle, a complex cross-section exhaust system is used. It also helps to concentrate mass because of its short and compact form.

Assist and Slipper Clutch (KP)

To save weight, the clutch hub and pressure plate rotational forces are utilized to squeeze the clutch together during acceleration (Assist function). It enables some clutch slippage under high back-torque situations, such as when a low gear is chosen, to assist avoid engine lock-up and stalling, as well as rear-wheel hop. A roller-type shift drum provides smooth actuation and excellent shift sensation. Low- to midrange power feel and responsiveness are improved with a short final drive ratio.

Six-Speed Transmission

For improved rider comfort, particularly while idling at a halt, a fan cover located in the back of the radiator directs hot air down to the ground just below the engine. At a break, just raise the shift lever to choose neutral. A unique feature only found on Kawasaki motorcycles that make them more user-friendly.

Frame

With the Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike in mind, the redesigned frame improves the Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike -capacity X’s to tackle uneven pavement. The reduced number of parts and lighter brackets, and lightening holes carefully positioned all help to reduce the total weight. They are designed to provide the rider with a good sense of control at the front end. The design uses the engine’s robust mounting as a stressed component to increase rigidity and save weight. To assist with the rider’s reach to the ground, the frame was maintained as thin as possible under the seat.

Long-Stroke Suspension

A considerable amount of time spent traveling Rough pavement is no problem with the 41mm front fork, which provides excellent feedback and a more secure Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike. The 17mm hollow front axle increases the stiffness and stability of the front end while decreasing the vehicle’s overall weight. The Uni-Trak® rear suspension, with its bottom-link design, is specifically designed for use on rough paved roads and improves ride quality. A long swingarm improves riding stability and handling.

Wheels / Tires

Lightweight aluminum rims on the 19-inch front and 17-inch rear spoked wheels. Tires that can be used for a variety of tasks give off an adventurous vibe. Rally bike style adorns the rigid design.

Styling

Because of its imposing appearance, people will think this is a lot more powerful bike than it is. To improve riding comfort, the upper cowl has a wide windshield that embodies the aggressive Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 Supersports Touring Bike design. In hot weather, air ducts under the headlamp assist in keeping the cowl cooler. A large hole inside the cowl allows radiator heat to be dissipated quickly.

Comfort

Lower engine guard type cowls give the vehicle a more adventurous appearance by seeming to cradle the engine. In the city, as well as on the open road, the upright riding posture offers a comfortable seat, and the wide handlebars and steering angle help with low-speed maneuvers. It’s thin between the thighs so that riders can get to the ground with little effort, but the back of the seat provides enough room for passengers to feel comfortable. A rear grasp bar with a large diameter improves passenger comfort. There has a flat rear carrier that carries loads well since it is level with the seat. Footpegs with rubber-cushioned inserts minimize vibration, resulting in improved ride quality. For a more immediate sensation and improved boot traction, the cushions may be removed.
